Abstract
This paper introduces a marco traffic flow model of carbon dioxide emissions
from container ports. As long as both the throughput and the transshipment rate of
the port are available, any port in the world can use it to estimate emissions.
Initially, two Japanese container ports are used as reference points to derive the
equivalent units of carbon dioxide per TEU for application to other ports. Then
marco traffic flows within a container port are defined. Finally, carbon dioxide
emissions from different container port are estimated using the marco estimation
procedure introduced in this paper. The results of trial estimations for selected ports
among different countries highlight that the impacts of container ports on global
warming are serious. This issue will be intensified if competition is increased by the
larger container ports aspiring to be international mega hubs.
